All In The Name Of God ?

All In The Name Of God  ? prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

Violence !Bloodshed ! Massacre !
Hatred and callousness having its nasty play across the globe, inflicting
myriad miseries on innocent people here and there, every now and then .
And all these insane acts in the name of God !
What a fallacy of faith to profess evil and good in the same breath !
Besides sinful sacrilege these votaries of violence are also guilty of attacking the very essence of human values and the ethos of the age we live in .
Things seem going out of control with hardly a solution in view .
But isn’t there a way out ? Will this rich and beautiful culture of ours will yield to the ever growing cult of barbarism ?
A dreadful nightmare in deed !
Strangely ,the optimist in me rejects such supposition and keeps assuring me
that this is only a passing phase in
the scheme of nature ,where winds of change are sure to follow .Soon a day will dawn with light of reason that will dispel the darkness of delusion and good sense will again prevail making the world a better place for every one to live sans fear
Till then,l et us all join hands in prayer to make my,nay ,our dream come true!. Amen

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

The very essence of love is uncertain, A relentless thumping of the heart. I must speak to you by such means as they are within my reach. He pierces my soul driving me into madness. I am half agony, half
